‘True Detective’ Season 2 Looks So Good — VIDEO

I really wasn’t into the first season of True Detective and found it boring, but you’d best believe I’m on board for Season 2, not only because my girl Rachel McAdams is in one of the starring roles, but also because from the look of the first trailers we’ve seen so far, it looks like it’s going to be pretty damn good. The first teaser was a bit hard to interpret given that the entire thing was dubbed with music and there was no dialogue, but HBO released a new preview this week that sheds a bit more light on what we can expect:

HBO is doing a pretty good job of building up suspense for this – I seriously can’t wait for Season 2 to premiere next month. It’s gonna be excellent, I can tell.

Will you be tuning in to True Detective Season 2?

Rachel McAdams Talks ‘True Detective’ Season 2

How great is Rachel McAdams? I just had to start out by saying that because I think she’s fantastic and pretty underrated (even though, you know, not really since she gets plenty of work). I don’t really know why I like her, but I do. Anyway, while she’s mostly spent her time on the big screen, next up we’ll be seeing her as one of the stars of True Detective Season 2. Vince Vaughn is in it as well, as is Colin Farrell, and it actually looks pretty good. Certainly seems like it won’t be as slow as the first season, and I’ll totally watch it.

Rachel is pumped to be playing the role of hard ass officer Ari Bezzerides and shared her excitement in the new issue of Marie Claire:

“I love that she’s not the girlfriend or the wife. She doesn’t really care what everyone thinks; she feels no responsibility for other people’s feelings. She’s not trying to be charming, which isn’t always the case with a leading lady. There’s [usually] sort of a responsibility to be a little bit likeable… Not that you want to be a horrendous character, just a little more human.”

Sounds good to me! The preview for Season 2 of True Detective is below, so tell me: Did you watch Season 1 and will you watch this one?

The first ‘True Detective’ season 2 trailer is here

I have to admit, I really couldn’t get into True Detective’s first season. I like Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson alright, but I just found it so slow, and not in a slow burn type of way, but just a ‘boring as hell’ one. Apparently it got way better if you were able to hang on for the first six episodes, but sorry, I’m not willing to give anything more than half its run just to get good.

That being said, I’m definitely on board for season 2. Rachel McAdams is the lead this time around, with Colin Farrell, Vince Vaughn and Taylor Kitsch also starring. The first teaser trailer was released on Thursday, but it doesn’t really give us too much of a hint of what to expect, other than guns, police, crime and a shit ton of violence.

Will you be tuning in for the second season of True Detective? Do you think it’ll be as boring as the first (or did you think the first was great)?

Rachel McAdams Gabs About Lindsay Lohan

Rachel McAdams and Lindsay Lohan once starred in a movie together, remember? It’s hard to believe, but it’s true. (Since then, Lohan’s been up to other things. And McAdams is up to being a star and getting it on with her totally non-gay boyfriend.) That movie was the now-classic Mean Girls. And Ms. McAdams has something to say about Lohan.

And it’s nice, of course. Boooooo, give us goss! Anyway, here’s what she told Allure about working with Lohan, and none of it involves the words “cocaine” or “unprofessional.” Crazy! Via ABC News:

If anything, I was in awe of her talent. I looked at her as this experienced actor, and she had great comedic timing, so natural. It’s just funny to hear that because you never know what people are thinking. We all try to act like we’ve got it together.

Yeah yeah, blah blah, tell us something real, McAdams.

WHY IS SHE SO DAMN NICE??

Are Rachel McAdams and Jake Gyllenhaal a thing or what?

Rachel McAdams and Jake Gyllenhaal have been spending a lot of time together because they’re working on a movie called Southpaw. However, their relationship seems to be extending past the co-worker title and might be getting a little more serious, if you wanna take anything from how often they’re together even off-set.

From US Weekly:

The costars let loose at Brenda & Ken of Wolfies Pub with about 60 others following a private dinner at Donatellos Restaurant.

“The owner of Donatellos bought them all a round of shots when they first walked in the door to get the party started. Rachel and Jake, along with the director and crew, were on the dance floor and mixing it up,” the source tells Us.

McAdams, 35, sipped on a Grey Goose martini and later switched to a Maker’s Mark on the rocks during the fun night out. Gyllenhaal, for his part, stuck to Guinness — that is, when he wasn’t doing Trey Songz’s Wobble Dance! “He wasn’t bad at all,” the source notes.

When it got too crowded, the costars then moved to a corner table for more privacy and eventually left around 2 a.m. “They were still having fun but mostly just hung out and talked,” the insider says.

Eh, I dunno. To add some context, this bar is in Indiana, Pennsylvania, so besides hanging out with each other, there’s not much going on, I don’t think. It’s not like they’re in some huge metropolis where they probably have other friends and shit to do.

I can’t really see them together, to be honest. Then again, I can’t see Jake with anyone, especially not while he’s still in Mountain Man mode.

Are Rachel McAdams and Jake Gyllenhaal doing it or what?

Look, I’m going to admit it: I want Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling to fall (back) in love just like in The Notebook (note: I have never seen The Notebook) and be together forever. APPARENTLY, however, that doesn’t seem to be in the cards at the moment since it’s looking like Rachel is involved with Jake Gyllenhaal. DOWNGRADE.

From US Weekly:

Rumors about the pair’s status have been picking up steam ever since early June, when they were seen having dinner together at Pittsburgh eatery Meat and Potatoes. A fan posted a picture of them on Instagram — and things took off from there.

An insider tells Us, however, that Gyllenhaal, 33, and McAdams, 35, are simply doing their due diligence to prepare for their new film, Southpaw, which stars the Nightcrawler actor as a boxer. “They’ve just been meeting about the movie…It’s really coming together,” the source says, noting that they have “good chemistry.” Adds another source: “Jake and Rachel are just friends.”

Sure, they could just be hanging out because they’re doing a movie together and it’s all part of the research, according to what that “insider” claims. However, I dunno – I’ve got my money on this being a new pairing, and I’m not quite sure how I feel about it. It’s good to see Jake is looking less insane than he was the last time we saw him, but he’s no Gosling.

P.S. Why is Rachel McAdams so pretty?

Move Over, Bradley Cooper’s Mom, Rachel McAdams Is On The Scene

Bradley Cooper‘s been living with his mom for two years, plus he’s been out of the dating game for a little while, which might make some people wonder if things aren’t going so well for him. However, it may be looking up for ole Bradley, as apparently Rachel McAdams – recently single after her split from Michael Sheen and her apparent unsuccessful wooing via text of Ryan Gosling – has been seen “flirting” with him when they had brunch together.

From Life & Style (so take it with a huuuuuge grain of salt):

Life & Style has learned that the Hangover star, 38, shared a very touchy-feely brunch with actress Rachel McAdams, 34, at Santa Monica’s Cora’s Coffee Shoppe on April 14.

“Bradley happily spent nearly two hours with Rachel, flirting and laughing over their meal,” an eyewitness says in the new issue of Life & Style, on newsstands now. “He seemed very into her.”

Strolling into the eatery with matching motorcycle helmets in hand, the couple sat down at the counter. A fellow diner dishes to Life & Style, “Rachel put her hand on his back and he put his on her shoulder. They were laughing and talking, and Bradley would not take his eyes off of her!”

Although Bradley’s rep refused to comment, the onlooker confirmed to Life & Style, “It definitely seemed like they were a couple. At one point Rachel put her hand on his hips and he was talking very close to her.”

I love that a woman can’t smile at a man or laugh at something he says without it being classified as “flirting”. Who knows – maybe she was flirting with him? But chances are there’s absolutely nothing to this story but two friends getting together for some food. Then again, if it is true, they’d kinda make a good couple. I’m with it.
